MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has called for ensuring the independent operation of the mass media.
"In the modern volatile world the importance of information exchanges keeps growing," Medvedev said in a message of greeting to the participants in the World Media Summit in Moscow. "It is important to ensure the daily newspapers and television and radio channels and world web resources should be able to operate independently, for the benefit of society, provide an impartial coverage of events and reflect the entire spectrum of opinions and positions and contribute to the preservation of cultural diversity and the promotion of humanitarian values."
Medvedev said the issues of ensuring the security and of protecting the rights of journalists remained very important for the state. He believes that the current forum will offer its participants a good opportunity to exchange experience and promising ideas and discuss joint projects.
